Sterling's newest millionaire got the news from a local store clerk — but, first, he received a warning.

“Now don’t have a heart attack…” the clerk told Walt Plummer. The Mega Million ticket was worth $1 million after the June 13 drawing.

Plummer received ceremonial check for the $1 million prize Wednesday at the 7-Eleven on Woodshire Drive. The store also received a $10,000 bonus check for selling the winning ticket.

Mr. Plummer, who works as a cabinet-maker, said he intends to use his winnings to take care of his family and save for retirement.

Just eight days after Plummer's win, a Powerball ticket purchased in Sterling won $1 million. That prize has not been claimed.
